We stopped in the bar before the show. The appetizer menu was irresistible. Since we couldn't finish before the show started, the bar tender saved the remainder and had fresh cocktails ready for us at intermission. it was very nice

I liked the production but the idea that these two people were poison for each other really didn't come through very well. I never saw the movie version but I have seen Streisand sing "People" and this actress could really belt out the songs, very...continued

I enjoyed the show. The actress who played Fanny Brice got stronger as the show went on. It was very enjoyable and the seats were good.

Description

Funny Girl is a musical with a book by Isobel Lennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill. The semi-biographical plot is based on the life and career of Broadway, film star and comedienne Fanny Brice and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nicky Arnstein.

The musical was produced by Ray Stark, who was Brice’s son-in-law via his marriage to her daughter Frances, and starred Barbra Streisand. The production was nominated for eight Tony Awards but, facing tough competition from Hello, Dolly!, it failed to win in any categories.
